Jump Jump, the 3-inch tall Elf was first conceived by the creative writing team of Mary McConnell and hubby Harry Hickox as an anchor character to introduce an initial series of some 65 vignettes of delightfully animated creature-based children's stories for year round, syndicated distribution through the Harry S. Goodman organization to radio stations across America.
That initial syndication caught both the attention and entrepreneurial interest of Sampson R. Diamond, who sought to put a physical image and visual personality to the delightful 3-inch tall Elf. He contracted with the Hickox' syndicator, Harry S. Goodman to contract out the Hickox's for a 25-episode children's adventure anchored around the Christmas Holiday season. Thus was born the first image of Jump Jump and a fully fleshed out package of Jump Jump characters, dolls, merchandise displays and marketing materials to promote the new 25-episode serial as a Christmas adventure. This is similar to the highly successful Cinnamon Bear and Jonathan Thomas and His Christmas On The Moon adventure serials distributed almost ten years earlier. These Christmas adventure serials were rapidly becoming a recurring holiday tradition over radio stations across the U.S. and Canada. So it was that Jump Jump's serial length adventure, Jump-Jump and The Ice Queen, was born.
